Bad Injectors

2005 F250 6.0l 146,000 mile, took it into local shop to have them check balance test, shows inj 1 & 8 missing out when cold, truck seems to run fine when warmed up, but if it is not warm, deffinately has a miss. Has gotten worse over last 1-2 months. Not looking for extreme performance, but want to keep it reliable and strong. Do I replace only the 2 or all of them, or go ahead and replace all 8 Debating between OEM Ford injectors and aftermarket injectors,not really wanting to spend more than what I can get OEM for ($1750.00 for 8+ core) but what aftermarket injectors are good and reliable. Have heard horror stories about some (Pensacola) but nothing about others (AccurateDiesel). Others are getting into the performance end, and that means more money, but they have good ratings/feedback.

Any feedback /info would be greatly appreciated

2005 F250 CC/LB 4x4, Basically stock, (in need of locker) used to pull my tractor and welding equipment and get me around town

Just replace the 2 if you are not looking to do a performance upgrade. OEM is the way to go.

You need good injectors if you plan to have them altered or are sending them in as cores for performance injectors.

If they are only acting up when they are cold, I would try one of the chemicals currently on the maket like Hotshot or Rev X. I would run it for an oil change and see if it helps. It seems to help people with minor issues the best.

i would also ask that you run a oil change of synthetic oil and give that a try before jumping to new injectors. that will will help the sticky injectors.
